Kashimoto slams Shinde Stadium shutdown

Sports Kashimoto slams Shinde Stadium shutdown

Mighty Mufulira Wanderers legend Fredrick Kashimoto has slammed the six-home-match ban FAZ has slapped on his old club after crowd trouble
at Shinde Stadium.

Wanderers have since sought refugee at Kafubu Stadium in Luanshya.

In an interview from Mufulira, Kashimoto described the punishment as very harsh.

The former Zambia midfielder said playing away from home may negatively affect Wanderers who have been bad travelers this season.

“I am very disappointed with this ban. FAZ should have punished the supporters by ordering Wanderers to play without supporters like they
do in Egypt,” he said.

Mighty were also fined K5000 while Zesco were handed the three points and a 3-0 win.

“They have punished innocent players who did not do any wrong. It is the supporters who were wrong and they must be punished as such,”
Kashimoto said.

Mighty’s first home game at Kafubu Stadium will be against Power Dynamos on Saturday.

“You know Wanderers have not played well in away matches and therefore if they are demoted supporters must take the blame. The
players worked very hard to win promotion,” he said.

Kashimoto added:”I am also telling the Wanderers executive to quickly appeal the ban.”

The news means Mighty will not play any home games at Shinde in 2015 until the 2016 season.


  1. Yes it’s a sad state of affair for wanderes this is also a warning to other teams that there’s no room for Hooliganism in our soccer, teams should start educating their supporters that win or lose for their teams there’s no need to bring the room done

  2. The punishment needs to fit the offence if there’s any. but here FAZ was punishing Mighty three times if not more. lose points, get fined, play away, why wasn’t the game replayed since it was abandoned in the first half? It is like the DC had a bone to chew with Mighty. Mighty let’s vote FAZ out next year
